OSGeoLive Desktop crash

Reported by: camerons Owned by: live-demo@…
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: OSGeoLive Keywords: 5.0 desktop


Running osgeo-live 5.0b5 (might be called 5.0), booting the mini iso in a VirtualBox VM:

I think I:

  • Single (maybe double) clicked on the "Help" icon. The help icon was selected.
  • Browser didn't seem to be loading
  • So I single clicked on another icon
  • Then right clicked on "Help" icon to select "Execute"

I got a "Crash" report. And "Problem in xfdesktop4. The problem cannot be reported, this is not a Genuine ubuntu package"

Also, all the desktop icons disappeared.

trac tip: put a space before the * or - on a new line to have it show up as a pretty bullet point. also: ReST markup (partially) supported in trac!

on one occassion: scp copy of a 1.1G tiff file crashed the VM

on another occassion: opening uDig after copying 1.1G tiff file crashed the VM

neither bugs reliably reproducible

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

presume this one was an out of RAM problem, fixed in #786. reopen if needed.

VMs without swap partitions to act as a buffer will always be running close to the wire, not much we can do about that.
